I did a post on shtf comfort food and the boost it gives your morale.
I too am a food lover, anyway the post spurred me onto an intense online search for old world recipe's and cooking things from scratch.
The main reason for cooking from scratch is my health as I am diabetic and also other/disabled.
The other reasons vary but satisfaction is a big one.
I have found what i consider to be the worlds best Mac and cheese recipe.
Well cheese sauce anyway, can be used for fettuccine, augratin, Etc.
1 stick butter
1 package cream cheese
1 cup shredded cheese (any) cheddar, parmesan, pepper jack, Etc.
1/2 cup milk or half and half
I try not to substitute any and keep it only real dairy no margarine, velveeta, Etc.
This recipe can be doubled, tripled, quadrupled, to fit any desired result, from totally stuffed to diabetic coma.
This recipe plus 1 lb noodles any kind, or 8 medium sliced potatoes.
Good stuff and best of all it is homemade.
Cook time about 10-20 mins. depending on your mood.
